Blake Brown- Cellar Master
Blake grew up locally in Atascadero before travelling out of the area for school, and then as a professional golfer on the Canadian tour. After moving back to the central coast in 2007, Blake took a job as the Assistant Pro at Hunter Ranch golf course. It was during this time that he was introduced to the Paso Robles wine industry through friends and colleagues.
Blake started his wine career at DAOU, and moved on to Chateau Margene where he continued his wine education through managing the tasting room and lending a helping hand during harvest. It was during this time that he decided that it was time to leave the tasting room to go into production full time.
Blake then became the production assistant at Mcprice Myers and over the next 2 years, he learned the attention to detail that is necessary when making small production wines of the highest quality. Always looking for a challenge, Blake then took a job with JUSTIN as the Cellar Lead at their Estate. His time at JUSTIN added another chapter to his winemaking training and prepared him for the daily challenges that a large winery presents.
When he’s not working in the cellar, you can find Blake out on the golf course, watching his favorite sports teams, taking trips to other wine regions across the world, making wine for his own personal label, enjoying a nice cold IPA or spending time with his wife and family.
